Book Review: Behind the Veils of Yemen by Audrey Grace Shelby

      If God placed the missionary calling on your life, would you go? What if he called you to a dusty, desolate land; where sickness, disease, and death were rampant? Audra Grace Shelby said yes and she wrote a book that describes her family’s harrowing journey from America to the culture shock of Yemen.  Making friendships, facing trials, and questioning her own faith at times, Audra chose to continue interceding for the Muslim women’s souls, and trying to keep her weary one. In an honest, friendly way, Audra shares her difficult, yet miraculous journey with the rest of the world.
    This book was indeed one of fine quality, crafted as a suspenseful novel, yet true in every way. I enjoyed her stories, {which were all true} and her obvious love for God, her family, and the suffering female population of Yemen. There were times I disagreed with her doctrine, HOWEVER, arguing doctrine will do nothing for this book. The book overall was a wonderful one, and I enjoyed the little bits of Arabic she put into it {along with the English definition}. I would suggest this book to anyone who enjoys tales of mission life, and anyone who wants to read an awesome “mini-biography”
